As the event continued throughout the evening, Zeta Tau Alpha welcomed guest speaker, Christine Barwick, to the center of the Eleanor Searle Drawing Room to share a piece of her personal battle with breast cancer and the advice she has for students here at FSC.
Speaking at the event, Maria said: 'It is wonderful to continue our fundraising efforts again this year. After excluding 92 women that carried mutations to BRCA1/2 from this cohort, women with PTVs had 1.76 times the risk of death from breast cancer compared to those without PTVs.
A number of students and other participants were screened as part of this year's campaign to mark the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month celebrated in October to increase awareness of the disease and to help those affected by the disease to go through early detection, education and support services.
